Risa Bos helps adults and couples unlock their inner strength and find their best lives.

Individual and Couples Counseling, Anxiety and Trauma, EMDR, Hypnosis, Addiction

It is sometimes suggested that people who need therapy are weak, when actually the opposite is
true: People who care enough about their mental well-being to seek counseling are courageous!
It’s not easy to make oneself a priority and reach out for help. In my years of experience, I have
developed a gentle, encouraging style of counseling that creates a safe space in which to explore
the inner emotions that may be holding you back and keeping you feeling stuck. I believe that
we each have everything we need within us to be happy, to find calm and to achieve the best
version of ourselves. I use a gentle, positive approach that encourages clients to deal with
uncomfortable memories and emotions, with guided support that allows them to feel that they are
not going through it alone.

I have over ten years of experience working with adult clients suffering from anxiety and trauma,
depression, relationship problems and addiction. Having been in recovery from alcoholism for
over 15 years, I can attest to the freedom and joy that comes from finding the strength to manage
your addiction. I understand the compulsion to use substances, despite sometimes catastrophic
consequences, in an attempt to self-medicate emotional pain. Living life free from the cloud of
addiction feels better than any artificial high!

I am trained in EMDR and Clinical Hypnosis, which are therapeutic interventions that have been
shown to be effective in treating many mental health concerns. My work with couples is based
on a combination of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and The Gottman Method, both of
which help couples to uncover the deeper needs—attachment issues—that are at the root of
relationship problems, and learn to build love maps that allow couples to turn toward each other,
and communicate with trust and vulnerability.

I studied psychology as an undergraduate and went on to earn my Master’s in Mental Health
Counseling from the prestigious Rollins College Winter Park, FL. I am a native of Central
Florida offering sessions at my office in the Dr. Phillips area, or via telehealth.

The greatest journey begins with a single step, and seeking professional guidance is a great first
step to take. I can help you find the courage that was within you all along, to explore the
emotional barriers keeping you stuck in your life. Make your emotional health a priority today
rather than “someday”. YOUR LIFE IS NOW!
